    Holiday Inn Express is the best hotel for business class in Ciudad del Carme..

    I stayed at this hotel and it was very easy to get around the city from there.

    The rooms very very clean and staff was respectful.

    I found a great spa called Fiji Spa Ciudad del Carmen as this hotel does not have spa,

    It is very clean as well and their staff gave me a great hot stone massage.

    Make sure you go around the city by taxi and not by foot.

    Good hotel especially for business.
    It’s a Good location close from Pemex offices, just in front of a modern mall, and next to Benningan’s restaurant.

    Rooms are clean, rather spacious and with free internet access.

    Restaurant is also good, although it doesn’t provide a lot of variety.
    Business center is rather small but you can use the installations for an hour free of charge on presentation of you Fiesta Rewards card (just register for free at the counter)

    The gym is also on the small side, but featured great machines(bowflex and life-fitness)

    Holiday Inn Ciudad del Carmen is like a typical Holiday Inn in Mexico, that is..Its neat but kind of not contemporary.

    The food is average. The hotel shop had nothing in it but there is a mall about a block away that has a supermarket (for water, cokes, etc).

    It does have free WiFi Service.

    The lighting in the room is poor.

    We went to El Jaguar, and my experience was just awesome!

    Its not a usual Mexican tourist restaurant as it has got a quirky Mayan cook!

    You can have a nice meal there but for a normal prize(like in Europe).

    We have been there several times, although just one time for a meal.

    The toilets are messy. And i think it was first the restaurant of a Hotel (there is one next door, hotel that is) but maybe they are separate now, cause we were the only ones and it didn’t look as if it was very busy (ever).

    We had some local burritos and the men had a Indian sate (chicken with peanutsause)! It was ok, but what i liked the most were the “dorito’s” with the garlic dip….wow !

    I call these Doritos but they have another name for them in the Mexican language.

    With 4 different types of cheese on them and a yummy warm sauce, you’ll feel so full that if you’ve had this for lunch then you’ll feel full till next day early morning and may even have to give your dinner a miss!

    Give the warm sauce a miss.

    Doritos with a lot of cheese makes for the great meal.
